    I was nervous at first about having Black Panther meets Star Wars. However, Coates, Acuna, and Sabino are working so well together. They're giving us "A New Hope" for T'Challa and connecting this character for all ranges of fans. Read Full Review

    It's a beautiful thing, although the action is surprisingly a little hard to follow. The dogfight probably shouldn't go for as long as it does, but the whole issue continues Coates' world-building and protagonist-raising. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Jul 2, 2018

    The pacing of the story may then come across as too decompressed for some readers. The pacing change is a deliberate change from Coates’ earlier arcs on Black Panther, which were at times criticized for being too slow or philosophical. By contrast, “Many Thousands Gone” is thus far a sci-fi actioner. Those who have enjoyed Coates’ earlier arcs may find Black Panther #2 a little too light in feeling, but Coates continues to weave history, both real and fictional, into the background of the story, while Acuña gives the book an epic quality that makes every moment feel big.

    Black Panther #2 is a good issue. It doesnt go beyond that, but it doesnt sink below it either. Its fun, TChalla remains one of Marvels best, and Daniel Acuna does incredible work with the visuals. This one comes with a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review
